TLC2019 Translation Slam:

Man vs. Machine!

The aim of the contest was to show different ways in which we can use machine translation to our advantage, and what skills we will need for that.

It included finding typical machine translation errors, post-editing, transcreation and poetry translation!

The Task!

The translators only had half an hour to get familiar with the instructions and perform their tasks - and oh boy, did they deliver!
